Aged Strike Leader Is1
Going Back to
Trinidad.
WILL NOT SUBMIT
| TO MILITARY RULE
; .
Picturesque Friend of the Min
ers Claims She Was Deported, j
Which Is Not in Accord With
Official Story?Departure
Attended With Great ;
Secrecy.
Dctivi r, Col., HI.?*'I will go |
'back to Trinidad before the end of this !
i week." Th is wan the <1':' laration made j
j to-night b> "JNI<>111?-1-"* Jones, eighty- '
two years old, leader of the s?tri*:iu?
j coal miners, who v..is reloaded last
j night from the Trinidad hospital, ,
] where she had been a military prisoner
j hi nee January 2 2, and brought to j
| Denver. The manner in which she left
the camp was attended with great j
' scrccy,
"I fully expect to be returned to
j prison when I reach the strike zone,
j but no 'iovornor nor President can
make me abandon my constitutional
right as a citizen to go where I please.
So long as 1 live, I shall refuse to sub- '
rnlt to military despotism."
"Mother" .lone:; made this statement
t after an interview with Governor Am
I rnons late to-day. She reached Den
ver this morning. There is a radical
difference between the statements of
"Mother" Jones and the State authori
ties, as to the manner In which she
left the hospital.
Sh.t* She Wa.q I)ep?rleil.
The .strike leader declares she siin
ply w.u deporteil; that she wa? brought
to I 'envoi under military escort and
.at State expense, without having evei
given her consent to leaving the strike
' zone.
Governor Amnions and Adjutant
General John Chase said "Mother"
Jones had expressed willingness to
leave the strike zone if Governor Am
nions would grant her an interview.
Horace N. Hawkins, attorney for the
strikers, entered the controversy with
the statement that he told the Gov
ernor "Mother" Jones had not asked
I for an Interview, hut that she would
j call on the Governor if Invited to do
so. Hawkins declared that the Gov
ernor then invited the strike leader to
call upon him.
The conference between "Mother"
(Jones and Governor Amnions was at
tended by John It. Lawson arid John
McLennan, strike leaders, by Hawkins
and by Claude faireliild, the Gov
ernor's private secretary.
j "Mother" Jones told the Governor,
whom she held responsible for her
imprisonment and many other events
j in t lie history <.i" the strike, which she
declares discreditable to the State,
that she had been deported against her
will. She said she would return to
Trinidad whenever she pleased. The
Governor replied he hoped she would
not violate the law or do anything
j to cause disorder in the strike zone.
' There v.*as a lengthy argument over
j constitutional rights, and the authority
<-: the militia to make arrests.
Servo Notice on (iovornor.
In the course of the interview with
the Governor, the strike leaders served
i notice th? y would make an effort to
restore the J.ower I-"orhes lent colony,
! where tents recently were taken down
j by tiie militia.
Attorney Hawkins declared it his
? opinion thai the authorities had
I oruught "Mother" Jones here and re
| leased her to block an appeal to the
Supreme Court i:i the application for
a writ oi habeas corpus, recently de
nied by District Judge A. \V. McIIen
: flrle. at Trinidad.
In declaring she would return to
Trinidad, Mrs. Jones said she wished
to look after the comfort of the w.trn
, en and children of the strikers, and,
; particularly, to establish schools for
I those in the tent colonies
j "If they do not arrest me at once,"
| she s.iici. "I shall go ahead caring for
j tiie strikers' women and children, ami
; encouraging the men to resist tyranny
and robbery by the coal operators."
"Mother ' Jones was put on an Atchl
i son, Topeka and Santa Ke train last
night, arriving in Denver early to-day.
Her transportation from the strike- dis
trict came after she declared her in
tension of leaving the district pernia
j netitly. General Chase had said ever
; since- iier arrest thai she was at liberty
to leave when she desired.
"M tlier" Jopes was arrested at Trin
I id-id on January 12, after having been
| deported from the district the week be
' fore and told not to return. Since
' her detention several efforts have been
j made to obtain her release.

WILSON INSISTS '
THAI BILLS COVER!
PERSONAL GUILT!
|
Depends on That to
Break Up Antitrust
Evils.
FOUR MEASURES
GET HIS APPROVAL;
I
They Will Be Consolidated Into
One, and May Reach House
Within Fortnight?Sherman
Law Strengthened in Its
Dealing With Trade
Relations.
Washington, March 1C.?President)
\\ iiHori, ni ;i rerice to-night wrtli I
the House Judiciary Subcommittee on
trusts, put the stamp of administra
tion approval on the substance of the
four bills to amend the antitrust laws,
which the committee submitted In vir
tually final form. Tliorc will bo another
conference at the White House within
a week, ami members of the committee I
asserted t'i-nis-'hi that unless protract-:
??il discussion should be raised in the '
full committee when the measures are
presented, nil four bills to strengthen ?
tlio Sherman law, covering Interlock
ing directorates, holding companies, i
trade relations and definitions of re- i
straintH of trade, would be reported to
the House within a fortnight.
President Wilson indicated his belief
that it would bo better to consolidate '
all the bills into one, in order to ex-I
pedite legislation. The Senate Inter- i
state Commerce Committee is under
stood to favor consolidation, and that '
It will lie etYe.""teii by the House .Tudl- j
ciary Committee practically is certain, >
?Miikc.t hrifrnl Suggestion*.
The President made a number of sug- j
P-stions to the subcommittee, which
comprised Kepresentati ves Clayton,1
Alabama: Cnrlin, Virginia, and Floyd,
Arkansas. Ho insisted that personal
l''tilt of individuals in control of cor
porations should be prescribed in every
bill, in order to break up the evils that 1
havo jyown up under the present anti
trust Jaws. The committee will revise
the bills with this In view, ami talk
with the President again before sub
mitting the measures to the full com
mittee and to the House. The draft of
the holding corporation bill had been
prepared just before the conference.
The measure would mako unlawful
tiiose holding companies that combine
the slock of corporations so as to lessen
competition, but would not affect com
panies which held the stock of corpo- .
rations that form essential parts of !
their business. Holding companies i
that are entirely for investment, and <
not for business directly, are not pro- j
hibited. This would permit companies j
like the big Insurance concerns to hold
the stocks of corporations which arc
not competitors.
The committee believes that In this
bill it has solved the problem of dis
criminating between the holding com
pany. operating by combining a num
ber of competitors Into one company, i
and the corporations that have been !
compelled to combine a number of con
cerns that are not competitors, but j

Snvcw Small Investor.
The committee pointed out to the t
President that the bill would save to !
industrial business the investor who '
buys the stocks of various corpora- ?
tions, but is not engaged in the busl- I
neS-S of operating any of them. The \
bill applies to railroad holding cor- j
poratlons, but not to subsidiaries. It
drawing the line at substantial com- i
petitors. It includes cotton mills, if :
made up of combined competitors; it ;
would prohibit holding corporations;
of moving picture concerns, which
sought exemption, and would strike at '
various large holding establishments j
which made pleas before the commit- I
tee.
The so-called "theatre trust" also
would be affected. Theatre corpora- !
tions which hold two theatres In any
one city, unless it could be proven that |
: the;, were absolutely noncompet'.ng,
| would be prohibited, but the bill would
| not destroy a chain of theatres In dif- 1
i ferent cities in which there was no '
j element of competition.
j None oi tlie four bills as now framed !
: provides for exemption of labor unions '
from antitrust prosecutions. l,nbor or- j
gauixations, particularly the American'
i Federation of I.abor, have urged the 1
passage of the Itacon-Bartlett bill,
j which would exempt from any prose
! cut ion under the Sherman law assocl- :
j ations organized wholly for the pro
; motion of labor.
The trade relations bill prohibits
? manufacturers from contracting to I
| prevent a merchant from handling a j
I competitor's goods. It prohibits final
price Using to the consumer, though it j
permits the manufacturer or whole
i saler to tlx the price at which goods |
shall bo sold in the first instance as |
from manufacturer to Jobber. Under !
this restriction, the first sale of a man- j
ufactured article by Its producer would ?

with tii.> President, and afterwards
ntrongly Intimated that the President
woul i not interfere in the pending j
negotiat ions.
Oitpose.H Time l.lmit.
Senator Weeks strongly opposes the
proposed time limit within which t!>?*
securities shall he sold, as contended
for by the A".turney-i i??neral. lie urges
that the limit he left discretionary with
the courts and asserts that the policy
of the Department of Justice will
have the effect of preventing the sale
and inducing possible Investors to
wait until a better "bargain counter"
situation is created for them. In ?
statement, Senator Weeks said:
"I havo seen the President and told
him that in my Judgment unless es
sentials were kept In view and de
tails subordinated I feared the New
Kngland railroads would go into the
hands of a receivership, an extreme
ly undesirable result from every view- J
point.
"As I understand It. the New Haven j
Railroad has agreed to dispose of its
Boston and Maine stock, severing its f
connection with that road, and has
accepted as trustees for its holdings
the men nominated by the Governor of
Massachusetts and New Hampshire, j
without an exception. It has agreed
to dispose of all of its trolley lines. It j
has already withdrawn from the Bos- I
ton and Albany agreement, which !t had !
with the New York Central Railroad '
It agrees to sen us .stock In all of its I
steamship lines, except the Southern
lines, and that question, under the
Panama act, is to be referred to the
Interstate Commerce Commission for
settlement.
One YitnJ ((ue.sttou,
"Therefore, the only vital question
in dispute is the time within which
the securities shall be sold, and tlu.s is
of Great importance to the railroad
stockholders as well as the -Vow Kng
land public, in my judgment no short
time limit thould be tixed, and the t
limit, when llxcd, should be extended '
il the railroad convinces the courts '
that lurther time is necessary or de- ?
sirable. To put a dual limit on the |
time, as th<> Department of Justice j
wishes to do, Is going to prevent a '
sale of these properties until they are '
even on a more extreme bargain coun
ter than the one which now exists.
"Investors will not buy Boston and
Maine and New Haven .stocks to-day,
and those roads should be rehabilitat
ed. making the stocks an attractive in
vestment for the New Kngland public, i
where they should be held, Instead of i
selling them 10 lie used as pawns on i
the. speculative checkerboard of out- I
side interests; incidentally, it is worth
while remarking that tiio only rail- I
roads which could buy this Huston and !
Maine block of stock would bo the I
(?land I runic or the Canadian Pacific
road.-, and I doubt if any New Kng- j
lander, directly or indiret tly interested, ;
wishes one of its main corporations!
controlled by foreign capital.
Important to Whole Country.
"Tills question is ?ot alone of vital '
importance to New Kim land, but to the
whole country, and indirectly to our
international affairs. If these two
old roads ?o into the hnnda of recelv< r?
that course will probably be followed'
ly others, the foreign investing pub
lic will become frightened, and we will
te likely to ROt back a deluge of our
securities, which would paralyze linan
cial and industrial operations in this
country. The parties at interest i:i
this matter should act. and act at
once."

Th?: British representatives, with

which complained that tho statutes of

second will meet at 1! I'. M. the same
day to "take such action as it may
lie.'.m advisable in regard to nominat

from a "turbulent political convention." i
In touching on the harmony sugges-;
lions of President Wilson, several
speakers characterized the action of
the President as "ill advised," and de

EDITOR OF FIGARO
SLAIN BY WIFE OF
FRENCH MINISTER
Gaston Calmette Is Shot
Down in His
Office.
MADAME CAILLAUX
TAKES VENGEANCE
Visits Newspaper Which Had
Made Series of Vitriolic At
tacks on Minister of Finance,
and Kills Author of Them.
Tragic End of Bitter Po
litical Fight.
Paris, March 1G-?Gaston Calmette,
editor of the Figaro, shot t.o-<l.T.y by
Madame Henrietto Caillaux, wife of
Joseph Caillaux, tho French Minister
of Finance, died to-night.
Mme. Caillaux went to the office of
the Figaro to carry out an act of ven
peance against M. Calmette, who had
been waging a onmpaign characterized
ny great bitterness against tho Min
ister of Finance. She fired at least
three times, M. Calmette being wounded
in the chest, in the side and in tho
abdomen.
"\Vhilo the editoi was being trans
ported to the hospital, lie said re
peatedly :
"I have done my duty. I have done
my duty."
Stllimltn to Arrest.
Having committed the deed, Mme.
Caibaux submitted to arrest, and,
while employes in the Figaro olllces
were taking tho pistol from her hands,
slio said:
".Since there ia 110 justice In thin
country, I take upon myself an act of
justice. Take nie where you will."'
Mine. Caillaux immediately was re
moved to a police station, where sho
underwent a preliminary examination,
the substance of which was communi
cated to tlie press at her desire.
"I am sorry," sho said, "for what 1
was obliged to do. I had no intention
of killing M. Calmette, and 1 would bo
happy to know that he will recover.
I desired only to teach him a lesson."
At the moment of the attack, M.
Calmette was preparing to leave his
oftlee in the company of Paul Bourgot,
the author. He excused himself to re
ceive Mine. Caillaux.
In her statement to tho police, Mme.
Caillaux explained that the campaign
against her husband bail become in
tolerable, and she determined to stop
it. She consulted an eminent lawyer,
who advised her that le^al proceedings
would be futile?that they wero often
worse in the case of an iuuoccnt per
son than in tho case of the guilty. Sho
decided then to take tho law Into her
hands. Sho bought a revolver, drove
to the Figaro otllce, and sent In her
card.
Fires All llor Cartridges,
M. Calmette was most polite, and
asked what he could do for her.
"'It is needless for me to pretend that
I am making u friendly call,' 1 an
swered," said Mme. '"aillaus. "Then,
losing all control of myself at tho
thought of the humiliations indicted on
toy husband by this man, I drew my
revolver from my muff and tiroil ail
tho cartridges. M. Calmette was sur
prised at the Ilrst report, and tried to
take tsheller behind a desk."
Mine, t aillaux was charged formally
with attempted homicide, and was re
movcd to St. I.azare Prison. f.ater the
charge was changed to homicide.
it wa3 officially announced to-night
that M. Caillaux had tendered his re
signation from tho Ministry of Finance,
but that Premier Houmergue withheld'
his decision until to-morrow.
Mnto. Caillaux''is the minister's third
wife. She Is thirty-nine years old, and
her maiden name was Henrietto Rain
ouard. She was the wife of Leo Cla
ret le, brother of the late Jules Clarctle,
from whom she was divorced.
Tho personal campaign of Gaston
Calmette against Joseph Caillaux be
gan on January 12, and since then tho
attacks against the Finance Minister
have been a daily feature of the paper.
Tho fact that the campaign was in
augurated on the eve of the opening
of the last session of tho present
Chamber of Deputies created intense
interest In the charges. Among these,
M. Calmette asserted that M. Caillaux
offered to pay $1,200,000 to M. Schneider,
the legal representative of Marcei
I'rieu, who had entered a claim against
the government, on condition that SO
per cent of that amount should bo
turned over to the radical party's cam
paign fund for the coming elections.
Mnkcs Sensational Clin rue*.
Marcel I'rieu was a French merchant
of Brazil. Thirteen of his ships wero
seized by the Brazilian government in
isso on tho charge that the customs
regulations had been evaded. Event
ually llrazil paid to tno French govern
ment an indemnity of $3,000,000. Prieu's
claim to this was repeatedly rejected,
but his heirs in 1S9!) formed a syndicate
to the claim.
M. Calmette also charged that M.
Caillaux had "tapped" the Comptolr
National IVKscompte and other banks
to the amount of $80,000.
Among other accusations it w;m
charged that the minister had exerted
pressure on the judges to postpone tho
trial of Henri Rocliette, who was ar
rested In Paris In 190S on tho charge
of swindling on an enormous scale,
thus enabling him to flee to Mexico. M.
Caillaux was also charged with au
thorising the quotation on the Bourse
of questionable foreign loans, where
by vist sums wero lost by French In
vestors.
M. Caillaux contented himself with
issuing categorical denials. But on
March 13, the Figaro printed a
facsimile of a letter from M. Caillaux
to an Intimate friend, dated "Tho Sen
ate, July lt>, 1901," at the tlmo M.
Caillaux was Minister of Finance In
the Waldeek-Rousseau Cabinet, In
which ho said he had been successful
in crushing the Incoino tax, although
seemingly he was defending tho tax.
This brought matter i to a climax, and
it was understood that the Finance
Minister intended to-take proceedings
against M. Calmette for . nubllsh'ing n
privato letter without authority either
from the sender cr tlio receiver.
